What I'm Watching

It's Winter and it's really cold out there! Also, I have a ton of sewing to do with my first comic convention next month. So I've been watching a lot of television.

Here's what I've been watching, enjoying, and my ideal watching style.

Once Upon A Time

I've been sharing my love for Season 3 of OUAT on my blog recently. The story between Emma Swan and Captain Hook, seeing Snow White and Prince Charming move forward with their relationship, and being introduced to new fictional (fairy tale) characters in Storybrooke has been very entertaining.

Watching Style:
Some episodes didn't grab my attention as much as others. Episodes typically focus on a couple of characters involved in a certain storyline, and if I don't care for them, those episodes aren't as enjoyable. I watched both Season 2 and 3 in a marathon-manner which I think worked best for me. That way if one episode wasn't as exciting or interesting, I was watching another one right after. I spent a lot of time pinning bags and filling cat toys while watching these seasons.

Sons of Anarchy

Adam and I started Season 1 of SOA finally. We've had the boxset sitting on our bookshelf for a while. We're a little over half way through the season but I can already tell this show is going to be addictive. The characters are great and the story is very interesting.

Watching Style:
Currently, we're just watching an episode a day when we're home together. We're savouring the season, though, I'm at the point where I want to marathon the rest of the season. Tensions are high and you can see some thing is building to lead up to the season finale and that's sparked my interest greatly. I'm guessing we'll be watching the rest of Season 1 quicker than how we started watching it. The 'let's just watch one more episode' time is coming.

Gilmore Girls

How many times have I re-watched this show?! Don't answer that.... Well, I'm re-watching it again. It's become my television show I watch while I sew. I've seen the episodes enough that it's ok if I miss a line or two because of my sewing machine.

Watching Style:
Marathon-style all the way! Like I said, I've seen this show enough that I don't need to savour the seasons and give each episode my undivided attention. Though, it's funny when I hit an episode I really enjoy. I find myself stopping my sewing machine mid-tote bag to watch the TV screen.

Cougar Town

The last season recently started so I'm catching up on episodes that have aired already. I've enjoyed each season of this show. The writing is funny and I really like a few of the characters a lot. I have found the seasons have gotten more and more silly. This isn't always bad but sometimes the episode or scene goes too far.

Watching Style:
I've been watching an episode here and there. I want to give each episode my attention since it's the last season and it'll be wrapping all the storylines up. Plus, most episodes have a lot of physical humour so it's best to have two eyes on the TV screen.

What have you been watching? I picked up the second season of Being Erica recently so I think I'll be starting that soon.

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
